It does not apply to all sections since the web site has this to say at least--

> Code Style Guidelines
> Patches must comply with the code style guidelines.... An exception is
> legacy components, which should not be cleaned up.

(from http://webkit.org/coding/contributing.html )

And from the Wiki:

> The WebKit source tree also contains the following project:

> 1. JavaScriptGlue: this is a legacy component needed for compatibility
> with some older Mac OS X software. It will eventually be retired and
> should not receive any new development.

(from http://trac.webkit.org/wiki/HighLevelOverview )

I don't know if there are any other sections.
